Famous quotes containing the word week:

    How pleasant is Saturday night,
    When I’ve tried all the week to be good,
    And not spoke a word that was bad,
    And obliged everyone that I could.
    Nancy Sproat (1766–1827)

    My veins are filled, once a week with a Neapolitan carpet cleaner distilled from the Adriatic and I am as bald as an egg. However I still get around and am mean to cats.
    John Cheever (1912–1982)

    It is remarkable how easily and insensibly we fall into a particular route, and make a beaten track for ourselves. I had not lived there a week before my feet wore a path from my door to the pond-side; and though it is five or six years since I trod it, it is still quite distinct. It is true, I fear, that others may have fallen into it, and so helped to keep it open.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
